Althought a tickets seller myself, I will be honest and use my expertise to help you and help make eBay a safer marketplace!

This guide is constantly under review! I will soon update this page and include all the tips I have learned by being a succesful ticket seller!

DOs

  1. READ CAREFULLY THE WHOLE AUCTION PAGE is the very first think to do

    •  It may seem obvious, but many buyers do not actually read what they are bidding on or buying! Reading just the title and the price is not a good tactic and may cause you inconvenience,  money and even a negative feedback depending on the seller you are dealing with! Many sellers have certain terms and conditions which you may not like.
  2. INVESTIGATE THE SELLER'S PAST
    •  The eBay feedback rating is a quite good estimation of a sellers reputation and status but it can be misleading.
  3. CHECK IF TICKETS ARE IN HAND
    • If the seller claims that tickets are in hand then you should expect a quick delivery. Some sellers show photos of the tickets in hand but make sure that they present the actual tickets and not a fake photo of someone else's tickets.
    • The usual case is that tickets are dispatched from the promoters to the seller anytime between auction day and a week before concert. It is therefore normal to receive the tickets a few weeks or days before event date.
  4. CHECK ACCEPTED PAYMENT METHODS
    •  Paypal is the faster and safer payment since it can offer a maximum of £500. Look for this icon  next to auction page. However many sellers offer other payment methods since Paypal charge the seller some fees.
  5. CHECK DATES
    • Make sure you know the date of the event you want to watch and double check in auction page for exact dates. Typing errors often occur and may lead to inconvenience.
    • CHECK THE SEATING PLAN
      • If possible check the seating plan of the host venue and make sure you are happy with the seats position.
      • Depending on the venue, some seats may look terrific but be terrible. For example they may be in first row, but the handrail may obstruct the view. Or they might be in the first block next to the stage but offer a poor angle side view.
